Wedding Hats To Suit Brides And Guests Alike (PHOTOS)

By Kellee Khalil for

One of our favorite things about Princess Kate is her penchant for pretty hats. Her fabulous fascinators are so chic; we're always wishing we had an excuse to wear one! But as guests at the royal wedding showed us, a wedding is the perfect occasion to sport a stylish topper. Brides can wear them in lieu of a veil, but fashion-forward guests can pull them off best. Our favorite styles are a bit more toned-down than the British aristocracy's picks, and they are perfect for staying cool and looking stylish at a wedding. Here are our favorite ways to rock a fancy hat this summer.
